As reported by the Channel 5, the State Border Service received mobile constraints and special dog leashes from the OSCE, so that Ukrainian border guards could comfortably transport four-legged animals while serving in remote areas of the border.

Canine handlers say that in such constraints, animals will feel comfortable both in winter and in summer. There is a place to rest and eat. Subsequently, the OSCE promises to transfer gps-trackers, computer equipment and drones to border guards, as well as the equipment for detecting explosives, weapons, and ammunition, along with the additional carriers for dogs. The support project was initiated back in 2019 and will last until September next year. The total cost of the assistance will estimate more than 2 million euro.

“We hope that dog trailers and equipment for service dogs will improve the work of canine units at border crossing points, as well as in green border zones. We are convinced that we are properly approaching European standards in the field of border service,” said the OSCE project coordinator in Ukraine – Henrik Villadsen.
